New Year, new project...
I'm into building a very small (200x150mm routing area) milling pcb router gathering as much scrap I have at home as possible, just for fun...
What i have at home so far:
Old Printer Stepper motors, I know thay have little torque but I guess they will do, because its a very small piece.
1mm lead screw, it will be a very slow machine but i guess this way will have some precision.
Kitchen drawers sliders:
Here I think they will do because the travel will be so little that they wont bend al all. I think that bearing will add a lot of weigth and its not good for the step motors.
The advise I need is from those who have already tried this kind of material, if this is not suitable at all, I've look in a lot of posts and the projects were to big for me to use, some of them are real pro solutions, not my purpose.
I'm going to start with the mechanical parts but the rail guide solution will influence the all project, and I will try to use the KIS(S) aproach.
Happy new year to all
